Nice B2. Did you register this in Washington due to licensing problems? Where in Utah are you?

Are you back in town??? How have you been? I really want to get back at it, but I have found life is nuts lately (last year and a half). I hope this spring I will be able to get to it. I did clean out the garage and can now access the b2, so its a start.

all i did was get some headlight bezzels from an old 70's ford truck at the junk yard and was planning on having to do some kind of modification but it turns out the bolted right on. even the aimers line up! all i had to do was cut my grill. :redneck:

i actually just finished gathering parts to swap in a d35 and 8.8. i've got the axles, 4.88 gears, an aussie locker for the d35, (gonna weld the rear), warn manual hubs and converion kit for the d35, and master install kits for both front and rear. i'm hoping to get started this weekend! and about the tailgate, it doesn't fold down but i can pop it on and off pretty easily so it is still functional.
